If there's one thing that is undeniably true, dollhouses are not just for children – especially when they happen to be the home of Christian Dior's latest offering of Lady D-Joy, Lady Dior and Lady D-Lite bags. For our Euphoric issue, creative director and stylist Sarah Pritchard alongside photographer Lauren Bamford and set designer Joseph Gauci-Seddon took us back to our childhood, creating a thread of storytelling that brings Dior's iconic handbag silhouettes to the forefront.

It's no secret that the Lady Dior – in all its variations – has become a hallmark piece for the House since its inception and release in 1994. Most iconically, its renaming from Chouchou, which is French for 'the favourite', to Lady Dior after Princess Diana herself, cemented the Lady Dior as a timeless bag that was made for, and loved by icons.
Now, in its contemporary reimagining, it remains an enduring symbol of luxury, recognised and loved across generations with a thread of history and sentimentality that will last a lifetime.
